Forum: etree Subject: Taping Question...

I have been trading and collecting shows for years now and have close to 400 shows but have not taped a single on of them. I have a huge desire to start taping due to the amount of shows I hit every year and would like to hear from the tapers what a good set up would be to get into this. Looking more over for recomondations of reasonably priced gear for a beginner I guess. I want descent gear but not outragiously priced gear either. Any suggestions of recorders, mics, etc. would be great. Thanks.

what I started with and am still loving it three years and 250+ shows later..

AT831 mics (aka audio technica 831) - ~ $119 from soundprofessionals.com

a battery box with bass rolloff ~ $40 - 60 from soundprofessionals.com

a Creative Nomad Jukebox 3 (~$120-140 on ebay)

that's it! if you're having trouble finding a nomad, get a mini-disk deck. sharp if you can, sony is ok.. yeah and just read up all the taperssection.com threads... good luck! the taping world is fun!

Lots of info is apparently available at taperssection.com. I believe they have an "Archive" of helpful tips. You may enjoy the community of fellow tapers there as well. Good luck on your new hobby (or addiction, as it may turn out to be). ;)

taping requires alot of diligence and patience. Firstly I reccomend staying sober, if that is not a problem them start with a minidisc recorder and a 1/4 x 1/4 or 1/4 x 2rca m patch cords and get busy asking dudes for patches. You'll find what equipment you like this way, where you like to tape and who you like to tape with.........and who you don't. There's also some unwritten rules like helping the dude break down or running for water, but you can get most of this information in the link Diana was referring to. Just remember to bring at least two of everything, stuff has a way of not working or sometimes it's just nice to help a brother out. Good luck and work on your scowling frown for the guy near your rig who won't stop whoopin'!
